I fully agree with that. As I pointed out before the fuss about systemd is not 
just technical, it is a social issue with the way upstream receives and reacts 
to any kind of feedback that criticizes the way systemd goes about things.

Also agreed to that… libsystemd is almost one third of the size of 
here… and it seems upstream basically stuffes *everything* into it, including 
reading process attributes that IMHO would be a task for a *different* shared 
object like the much lighter

But the discussion would need to be brought upstream, it just seems that these 
days no one dares to do that. I am not keen to subscribe to systemd-devel 
mailing list ever again after my last attempt to channel user feedback to this 
list and having been attacked with "now you are being a dick" by Lennart 
personally who on the other side rightfully complained about being attacked in 
person himself. (I unsubscribed from debian-devel mailing list back then for 
similar reasons.)

There is a split in the community that has never been healed, people just try 
to ignore it, but I doubt that this bug report would be the right place to go 
about this. And I wonder whether there is someone who would muster to bring up 
the courage to bring this up with upstream again in a constructive way.

Closing with a note to Michael: I learned to know you at DebConf 2016 and I 
value your work. However I didn´t see what you called an ad hominen attack as 
actually being one.

(I may refrain from any further comment here as I think its not really the 
place to discuss it.)

Thank you,
